    Cargo plane for UPS crash lands at Louisville International Airport - Courier Journal

    A small cargo plane carrying packages for United Parcel Service made a crash landing at the Louisville Airport early Tuesday morning when it had a mechanical failure.

    The Shorts 360 aircraft, which was delivering packages for UPS, had two pilots on board when it crashed on runway 17L. Neither of the pilots were injured, according to UPS spokesman Jim Mayer.

    The crash happened when the "nose gear collapsed" according to a report from the Federal Aviation Administration. Mayer described the crash as a belly landing, where the landing gear fails and the plane scrapes its way to a stop.

    Any landing you walk away from is a good landing!

    Did he beep the horn before screeching to a halt?

    Do airplanes have horns? Or turn signals or brake lights?

    Some actually do have horns, but they're used for alerting workers on the tarmac because they are not nearly loud enough to overpower the sound of the engines. Which is silly because I've never seen anyone working near planes not wearing ear protection.
